Lately shopping has only one purpose: to stock up on party pieces for the holidays free from regimented schedules. In the process of reincarnating the 'death' of me and Marvic's social life, I've realised both of us don't even 'partay' much.

Our idea of a good night is laughing at each other in psychedelic harem pants, skipping the clubs to munch on Cobs popcorn, and talking about gardening shows while listening to a live pianist - all of which has honestly happened before.

So my project of accumulating cocktail wear seems a little, well, redundant. A closet full of ready-to-go party frocks complete with attached swing tags sums up my situation. Since it feels like a waste for these pieces not to see the light of day, I've come with up a new plan of styling semi-formal garments for everyday wear.

Dressing down instead of dressing up, that's the prediction of my summer holidays.

我一直在囤积派对的服饰以迎接将要来临的假期。在我和 Marvi试图改变我们前一段时间“零派对的过程中,我意识到我俩未参加太多的派对。

我们心中对于美好夜晚的想法就是嘲笑对方穿着迷幻的哈伦裤,跳过去俱乐部而只是大声咀嚼爆米花,讨论园艺展的同时聆听一场现场的钢琴音乐会这些之前确实都发生过了。

所以我积累鸡尾酒会服装的这个计划看似有点多余。满壁橱即穿即走的派对连衣裙还挂着标签未被扯下,这就是我的情况概括。因为感觉这些服装终日不见天日是一种浪费,我有一个新的着装计划,那就是每天穿半正式的服装。

打扮随意而非刻意,这是我对暑期的预言。

Nag iipon na ako ng mga damit na gagamitin sa party para sa bakasyon. Sa muling pag kabuhay ng social life namin ni Marvic, na pag isip isip ko na hindi kami masyadong nag aatend sa mga party.

Ang idea namin sa masayang gabi ay tawanan ng isat isat tungkol sa mga pantalong malalaki at maluwang,  napapalampas namin ang hindi mag punta sa mga club para lang kumain ng mga tsitserya habang pinag uusapan na may pinapakingan kaming live pianist. Sa totoo lang nangyari na ito samin.

Ang proyekto ko na mangulikta ng mga cocktail dresses ay mukhang kalabisan na. Ang kabinet ko na puno ng mga damit na pang party, na may tag pa, yan ang sitwasyon ko ngayon. Dahil sa parang nasasayang lang ang mga damit, naka isip ako ng panibagong plano.

Pag style ng mga damit na pang araw araw , ito ang aking mga pakay para sa tag-araw.

As I toss aside my last uni assignments, it’s hard to fathom that my first year of higher education has come to a timely conclusion. For most mortals, this means partying from dusk til dawn, donning the most insanely regaled outfits our youth allows and shamelessly dancing to the latest Iggy Azalea hit.

But being the odd ball that I am, awkward and weird to the core, I can’t help but acknowledge the past few weeks as the death of my menial social life – pretty melodramatic huh?

That being said, I’ve noticed that the dramatics of my personality has ultimately lead me to dress for head to toe in black, channelling my inner Tim burton and likening to that of the Addams Family. Although the colour choice isn’t fitting for this sunny weather, there is something mischievously fun and twisted about rebelling against the social norms of ‘weather-appropriate’ dressing. It may be a social death in the making, but one totally worthwhile.

Pagkatapos kung I submit ang huling assignment, mahirap isipin na ang unang taon ko sa university ay tapos na.  Ang ibig sabihin nito sa maraming estudyante na, makakapag party na ulit sila, simula sa umaga hanggang madaling araw, makakapag suot na ulit ng mga crazy style na damit, at sumayaw nang sumayaw sa bagong kanta ni Iggy Azalea.

Pero dahil sa kakaiba ako sa ibang kabataan, ang mga huling lingo ay parang katapusan na ng aking social life – ang drama ano?

Dahil nasabi ko na ang ang drama ko sa buhay, napansin ko na ang personalidad ko sa pananamit ay nag bago at nag simulang mag susuot ng itim mula ulo hanggang paa. Dahil na rin sa inspirasyon ko na si Tim Burton at Addams family. Kahit na ang kulay ay hindi bagay sa panahong ganito, meron pa ring mga bagay na nakakaaliw, sa hindi pag sunod sa bagay na pananamit ayon sa panahon.

当我折腾完最后一份大学作业,难以置信的是,我的第一年大学生活就这么结束了。对于大多数人来说,这意味着穿着年轻人可以穿的最疯狂的衣服,派对狂欢从黄昏至黎明。

但我是一个奇特的人,我不禁意识到过去几周以来我居然没有参加任何社交活动,很戏剧化吧?

我注意到我的奇特个性驱使我全身上下都被黑色所包裹。虽然这个颜色与阳光明媚的夏日是多么地格格不入,但是与“适应天气”的穿衣社会风范对着干也使我感受到了恶作剧般的乐趣。可能我正在制造零社交,但这又是完全值得的。

The recent Sydney heat waves tell us one thing: that summer is well and truly approaching. And just like that, the change in wind brings a variation of style.

I find myself tucking away the structured shapes and button ups of winter instead reaching for lightweight cottons. It really isn't hard to adopt this boho form of dressing - after all the rise in mercury does require airy garments for comfort and ventilation.

Not only that, the bohemian style comes with its own attitude. The breezy nature of the draped fringe and low back cut makes me want to twirl in fields of long grass - evidence of how fashion can affect our mood and vice versa. It's no wonder that most 'boho' editorials are photographed in natural settings from beaches, to forests, from paddocks to meadows. But seeing as I'm lacking a professional team and aren't near any of the aforementioned places, I made do with the patches of greenery and natural rock formations around my home. Yes, I pretty much live in on a cliff.

最近悉尼的热浪告诉了我们一件事:夏天真的要来了。就这样,变幻之风带来了着装风格的变化。

我发现自己摒弃了冬季严谨的塑形及调节扣的衣着转而选择了轻便的棉质。适应这种“波西米亚”穿衣风格其实并不难 - 毕竟气温的上升确实需要我们更注重衣着的舒适和透气度。

不仅如此,“波西米亚”风格源于自身的态度。流苏和低切背带来的阵阵凉爽会使我想在长草地里旋转 - 这也验证了时尚的确能够影响我们的情绪,反之亦然。这也难怪,大多数“波西米亚”的编辑取景于自然环境,从海滩到森林,从牧场到草地。但如大家所见,我缺少一个专业的团队,也不靠近任何上述地方。但我拼凑了我家周围的自然绿化和天然岩石。是的,我几乎住在悬崖上。

Dahil sa init ng panahon dito sa Sydney, Australia: nararamdaman ko na ang summer ay talagang nandito na.

Napansin ko sa sarili ko na nag sisimula na akong magtago ng mga makakapal na damit at inilalabas na ang maninipis. Hindi mahirap pakibagayan ang mga damit na katulad nito. After all, ang init ng panahon ay nangangailangan ng mga damit na komportable, maaliwalas at magaan sa katawan.

Hindi lang dahil sa aliwalas sa katawan ang pag susuot ng mga damit na kagaya nito, ito ay nag bibigay ng magandang pakiramdam. Ang detalye ng damit ay kainga inganyo na gusto kung sumayaw ng paikot ikot sa bukid ng mga bulaklak. Dito makikita na ang fashion ay malaki ang epekto sa ating pagkatao, at kabaliktaran. Kaya ang mga pictures ng bohemian style ay ginagawa sa dagat, kagubatan at halamanan. Dahil sa wala akong propesyonal na team, ginagamit ko na lang ang mga halaman at malaking bato sa tabi ng bahay namin. Oo, Nakatira ako sa tabi ng talampas.
